We had a very nice meal. Steak, sea bass, salad and pasta were all good, fresh and tasty. Service was excellent. One of our best meals in Dubrovnik. The couvert charge mentioned by another traveler was only 10 kunas per person and included tasty bread and a nice cold soup sampler.

We happened upon this restaurant just off the main square. Our waiter was the perfect host and looked after us giving suggestions on food and wine. We four dined on super fresh fish filleted at the table with humour and panache the wine choice was superb. I would recommend eating here for the welcome, ambience and fresh local fish.

The chicken was so juicy. The staff was friendly (almost too friendly ;) ) The location is cozy and calm. Tap beer was also good. Would recommend.

This actually had the best food of our trip. Great seafood platter with Whole seabream mussels langoustine and squid. They even did a 3 people version for us. My sons steak was good too. So why not 5 stars? Well a sneaky cover charge of 100 kuna per person and side dishes like chips with the steak extra. So great... More

We were looking for lunch and stumbled upon this place... boy were we happy! We ate some of the best fish we have ever had. It was only caught around an hour before it was served to us, but was beautifully prepared with fresh herbs, garlic, lemon and olive oil. We also had mussels in fresh tomato sauce and in... More

We followed a trip advisor recommendation to try this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We were served complimentary bread and zucchini to start and we ordered scrumptious ravioli stuffed with spinach and cheese with a white wine sauce. We both ordered the sea bass which was filleted for us at our table. Service was very good and the location... More

We stumbled across this restaurant one evening and decided to eat there as the menu was more interesting than other restaurants in the area and it is in a pretty little courtyard! The food was delicious, the waiter was really helpful and the service was quick but not rushed. We liked it so much we went back the next night!... More

Located in a small alley in the Old Town, this is a wonderful restaurant in a sea of average meals. The waiter recommended a delicious bottle of local white wine that was a perfect accompaniment to our meal, which included octopus, smoked tuna, truffle pasta and black risotto. It's not cheap, but it was certainly memorable.
